Great episode, great season, GREAT SHOW!

I'm devastated that it is not returning. I'm so invested in these characters now and I will never figure out what happens to them!

I hope & pray that another channel (HBO, Showtime, Starz) picks it up. I didn't watch the F/X drama Damages, but I know after F/X didn't renew it, it went to DirecTV so it could finish its story.

But I'm a realist, so I'm not expecting it.

april, you fool...out of nowhere? the whole season part of the story was his dimentia, how his daughter was not allowed to tell the mother, how he was worried he would end up like the old champ from the previous episodes. he even had a dream how the doctor told him it wasn't real....come on april, your better than that!

Did anyone else notice the injury to his eye in the fight moved around between scenes ? from his right eye to his left between the fight, the dressing room scene and the hallway scene out side dressing room ?? Great show anyway.......

I really hope another network picks up Lights Out, too good of a show to can after just one season. A lot of successful series struggle their first season with ratings.

Too bad the show had to end.

Great show, too bad they aren't making a second season. Favorite quote of the night "Who won the fight", Theresa...

Oh yeah, one complaint about the episode - I thought the fight was kind of weak. I mean, I like Lights and all, and I wanted him to win, but it wasn't exactly realistic to have him destroy Death Row like that after being out of boxing for so long. I mean, the made went the distance 5 years ago, and Lights knocks him out in the 3rd round this time? Not very believable, but oh well. Doesn't take away from the fact that this was a great episode.

Ugh... such a great show. Some may disagree, but I felt it still had so much more potential (even though early on I really couldn't see it going much further than the Lights Death Row rematch). I mean, there was the United Boxers, the failed hit on Lights's sister, that meeting between Hal and Barry about halfway through the season that, unless I am mistaken, was never explained, the story behind Theresa and her family in England, Eva's rebellious behavior, Johnny's son not growing into the person that Johnny wants him to be, Lights's mom, and I'm sure there's plenty more I didn't mention.

I am holding on to the, admittedly, 1 in a million chance that FX changes its mind because this finale got good ratings, or some other network picks it up, etc. I found it strange that none of the TV ads were promoting it as the series finale, but instead as the season finale, and am hoping they did this for a reason (even though they probably didn't).

One thing everyone has to admit though, is that this WORKED as a series finale. It left me heartbroken for Lights and his family - a good cliffhanger that never gets an answer. I'm not exactly sure how the show could go on with a dysfunctional Lights. When I was brainstorming about the directions the show could go in over the years and how it would end (this brainstorming obviously took place before the news that Lights Out was not renewed), I believed that the dementia hitting on hard like this would be the series finale - except to a show that went on for 4 or 5 seasons.

Is it not too far-fetched to believe that the season would not have ended this way if the show had been renewed? I mean, I could see them ending the season some other way, but filming this "alternate ending" in case it did get axed, and throwing it in since it would work better as a series finale than whatever else they had planned...

Great episode, great show, and poor me (as well as the rest of Lights Out's fans). We will miss you Lights - RIP.

What a great series. So sad to see it come to an end after the first season. Holt McCallany did such a great job playing a this character. I'm hoping he gets a new show so he can be the lead again. He definitely has new fans and I m proud to say I am one of them.
